The World Is in the Grip of Demonic Obsession
Part One: When you kick out the angels, demons rush in to fill the void
Have you noticed the crazy?
Otherwise reasonable men and women have lost their minds over COVID. That is undeniable. This group of suddenly-crazy people includes researches, doctors, and scientists in addition to our friends, family, and co-workers.
Symptoms of this mania include:
People still wearing masks
People at work saying, "I'd be fine with killing people who don't get vaccinated."
Researchers at the CDC who rig studies
Religions who impose a vaccine mandate in order to attend church
People who've recovered from COVID but get the experimental vaccine, anyway
People who offer their children as sacrifices to experimental gene therapy
People who believe it's better for their children to have permanent heart disease than to contract COVID
People who, themselves, believe strokes, heart disease, and neurological disabilites are better than a virus with a 99.6% survival rate
And aside from COVID:
People who crush Christmas parade participants with their car
People who shoot their classmates with their dad’s new gun
People who turn viciously against one of their own for speaking even sliver of truth
It’s happening everywhere. The world has gone mad.
This is just a short list of the craziness we see every day, but I can summarize it with this: a large number of Americans would rather die of medicine than survive an infection, and the normal rules of behavior are shattered.
It's Not Entirely Their Fault
Nowhere in history have we seen such madness spread so far and fast, nor affect so many people and to such a degree. Americans who recently believed in "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness," now believe in concentration camps, social ostracization, and even extermination of their fellow Americans. full one-third of the US population embraces all the tenets of Nazism, and that is not an exaggeration.
How in the name of God did this happen? How did we go, in one year, from the land of the free and the home of the brave to the reincarnation of the Third Reich?
It's not fear, nor the media, nor Joe Biden. And I don't completely blame Dr. Fauci or Pfizer, though their degree of guilt is immense. And not all of the blame lies with the individual Americans who've lost their minds, although they, too, bear guilt for cooperating with evil. (They also bear responsibility for failing to recognize and correct their own moral degradation.)
Those who don't believe in the devil already think I'm crazy. Maybe I am.
So, why do I continue to write things that make people think I'm nuts?
Simple: I cannot bury the truth.
How do I know what I write is the truth?
Simple: Every "crazy" post that I vacillated over, wringing my hands, re-reading, has turned out to be true.
I don't claim some special clairvoyance or superior intelligence, although I've always scored a few standard deviations above the norm on pattern recognition. Maybe I just see patterns well. Maybe God did give me a mild gift of prophecy. I really don't know, and I don't claim either. I just know that things I predicted in 2018 are coming true today, and things I predicted in March and April have become true. Things that my friends and family told me to stop bloggin about—demons and civil wars and vaccine apartheid and stuff like that.
I Felt Compelled to Write This
All day, a voice in my head has been saying, "you have to write tonight." (I know the voices in my head aren't real; but they make a lot of sense.) I haven't written in well over a month. I've been busy, I tell myself.
And I have been busy. Major home projects. Sixty-hour weeks at work. The usual.
But I haven't been too busy to write. I've been avoid thispost. I've been avoiding it because it will convince everyone I'm crazy. And maybe I am.
So I began. And this happened.
I found a link to a recent US Grace Force podcast recorded on November 18. The subject: "Satan tells exorcist God is going to end Satan's 'time' soon."
If you don't know what that means, here's a brief history of the so-called Leonine Prayers at the end of the traditional Low Mass and the inspiration for the Prayer to St. Michael and its exorcism version reserved for priests.
Pope Leo's Vision: October 13, 1884
From the website Michael:
Exactly 33 years to the day prior to the great Miracle of the Sun in Fatima, that is, on October 13, 1884, Pope Leo XIII had a remarkable vision. When the aged Pontiff had finished celebrating Mass in his private Vatican Chapel, attended by a few Cardinals and members of the Vatican staff, he suddenly stopped at the foot of the altar. He stood there for about 10 minutes, as if in a trance, his face ashen white. Then, going immediately from the Chapel to his office, he composed the above prayer to St. Michael, with instructions it be said after all Low Masses everywhere.
When asked what had happened, he explained that, as he was about to leave the foot of the altar, he suddenly heard voices - two voices, one kind and gentle, the other guttural and harsh. They seemed to come from near the tabernacle. As he listened, he heard the following conversation:
The guttural voice, the voice of Satan in his pride, boasted to Our Lord: "I can destroy your Church."
The gentle voice of Our Lord: "You can? Then go ahead and do so."
Satan: "To do so, I need more time and more power."
Our Lord: "How much time? How much power?
Satan: "75 to 100 years, and a greater power over those who will give themselves over to my service."
Our Lord: "You have the time, you will have the power. Do with them what you will."
In 1886, Pope Leo XIII decreed that this prayer to St. Michael be said at the end of "low" Mass (not "high", or sung Masses) throughout the universal Church, along with the Salve Regina (Hail, Holy Queen); and the practice of the congregation praying these prayers at the end of Mass continued until about 1970, with the introduction of the new rite of the Mass.
St. Pope Leo XIII was so moved by the experience that he gave us a prayer to be recited daily, after every Low Mass, to combat the devil's century.
We don't know when the devil's century began, but we know we're in it. We have confidence that something preternaturally BIG happened in June of 1963. Father Malachi Martin, SJ, told us about a Black Mass celebrated simultaneously in the Vatican and in South Carolina. At the South Carolina location, a bishop or cardinal raped an 8-year-old on the altar of a parish church. Simultaneously, her 8-month-old puppy was tortured to death in its cage. The mass was intended to give Satan primacy in the Roman Catholic Church.
Participants in that mass became leaders in international business and politics. One allegedly founded the World Economic Forum. Together, these Satanists vowed to win over the entire world, all of humanity, for Satan. They would do this by establishing a universal world government, a universal world religion, a universal world currency. In return, Satan, the prince of this world, would grant them their wishes for power, money, and sex.
It's all documented in Martin's book Windswept House, a "novel" the author claimed was 85 percent fact. Martin changed some names, obfuscated some instances, and dreamt up some dialog. But the characters and events portrayed in the book were known to him or related to him by persons involved. (Windswept House, by the way, seems to have been tossed into the memory hole, but you can read it free online here.)
For those of you who were alive and aware in 1963, you know that in June of that year, the world was very much like a continuation of the 1950s. Then, everything changed.
Kennedy was assassinated. The Second Vatican Council lurched violently leftward. The 1960s were springing to life.
Whenever Satan's reign began, it became undeniable in 1963, the year I was born.
"He's About to Take My Power Away From Me"
Evil may have its hour, but God will have His day.
—Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
Fr. Chad Ripperger is a famous exorcist. He has been performing solemn exorcisms for 15 years. He'd been studying deliverance and demonology longer than that. He's also a psychologist, making him uniquely qualified to discern the difference between physical or psychological pathologies versus demonic obsession, oppression, and possession.
Here is his testimony on US Grace Force, November 18, 2021.
If you skipped the video intending to watch it later, please stop. Go back and watch the video, undistracted. Listen to Fr. Ripperger's every word. You must know what the devil told him during on-going exorcism to understand where you are in history. Without this information, you are lost.
America Is Diabolically Obsessed
When demons exert external influence that affects a person’s mental state, causing some kind of mental disturbance, this is traditionally called “obsession.” Obsession can take the form of extraordinarily persistent or intense temptations, or it can even provoke or intensity [sic] natural pathologies or tendencies (phobias, depression, etc.).
My wife noticed, a month or more ago, that almost everyone she knows has lost his mind. (She wasn't talking about me this time.) What she meant was: otherwise reasonable friends and colleagues are suddenly so freaked about COVID that they cannot function. Libertarian-ish friends suddenly became okay with locking up anyone who refused to get vaccinated. Kind-hearted friends now call for years of prison for people who don't wear masks, even when masks are not required. People who were once concerned about their health suddenly saying they'd rather have heart disease than COVID.
And the anger. People look, walk, and talk like they’re pissed off. Everywhere. People are mean and inpatient and selfish. Completely self-absorbed. And constantly seeking distraction. And constantly on the edge of a nervous breakdown.
What my wife (and everyone who's honest with himself is witnessing) is, in my view, diabolic obsession on a massive scale.
Fr. Ripperger points out that possession is still exceedingly rare, but obsession and oppression are becoming frighteningly common. He estimates that one-third of Americans are under some kind of diabolical attack.
America's infatuation with the occult, which began in the 1960s and 1970s (remember Rosemary's Baby?) has blossomed into a cultural norm. Halloween, the vigil of All Saints Day, has become a celebration of the occult.
When you play around with the occult, you get demons. When you expel God from his rightful place as the Father and center of life, you open the door to demons. When you separate church from state, you vote for demons. When your king is anyone other than Christ, your king is a demon.
America doesn't have an economic problem or an energy problem or a pandemic problem. American and the whole world has a demon problem. And human effort will not solve this problem.
So, he devil himself has now been forced, by the power of Christ, to reveal that God is about to take his power away. Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia.
But we don't know when.
A Brief Survey of Demonology
Before we get into the actual signs of mass demonic obsession in America, we need to give a little background on demonology. This will be brief, but it's essential you understand how the preternatural world works.
1. Demons Have a Strict Hierarchy
Just as we recognize nine choirs of angels with strict ranks, there are hierarchical levels within the demonic world. Satan is the most powerful, most intelligent, and most evil. But immediately beneath (above?) Satan are five generals. (I won't give you their names because even reading their names risks attracting their attention.) These five generals have specific duties in the downfall of man:
The demon of impurity (primarily through fornication)
The demon of submissive homosexuality in men (bottoms)
The demon of dominant homosexuality in men (tops)
The demon of seductive homosexuality in women
The demon of child sacrifice (abortion)
If you study the downfall of great civilizations, they all followed this pattern: fornication, male homosexuality, female homosexuality, child sacrifice.
These five demons, you will notice, are Satan's generals, the most powerful demons. And they're all in charge of sex and its consequences. Remember that.
(For more information these demons, see this Jesse Romero video):
2. Demons Are Bound to a Strict Legal System
Demons can do nothing to man without God's permission. Demonic infestations, oppressions, obsessions, and possessions require divine permission. (Remember the demons who asked Jesus' permission to go into the herd of swine?)
Demons are constantly badgering God for permission to harass us. Demonologists have learned in exorcisms that God grants permission for four primary reasons:
Sin, especially sin against the First Commandment (love God above all else).
Dabbling in the occult; aka, asking for a demon problem.
Brokenness, usually involving childhood trauma at the hands of a person with natural-law authority over the child (a parent). (In natural law, parents have authority over their children and can give them over to Satan. They often do.)
Perfection. Great saints have been hounded by demons to perfect their sanctity.
Exorcists also tell us that sexual sins usually precede sin against the First Commandment and occult practices (which are usually inspired by romantic desires). Moreover, severe child abuse usually has a sexual angle.
Now, you might see why Satan's favorite demons are all sex specialists. Sexual sin is the gateway to demon problems.
3. Demons Speak the Truth Under Duress
How do exorcists know all this? They learned it from demons.
Demons are all liars, but under extreme duress of a solemn exorcism, before they succumb to the exorcism and leave the afflicted person, they speak the truth. They tell exorcists a lot. They tell exorcists things that that exorcists could not know naturally.
What we know about demons, therefore, comes mostly from demons under duress, as Fr. Ripperger explained in the video. (You watched it, didn't you?)
(If you're not reading the writings of experienced exorcists and demonologists, you are fighting blind.)
Current Signs of Demonic Obsession
What are the signs of mass demonic obsession in America:
Fornication is celebrated openly throughout America, even in churches, and, especially, in schools. Even "devout" Christians watch filth on television and movie theaters, thinking nothing of it.
The LGBTQ movement can ruin the lives of anyone who offends it.
Abortion. Your labor now funds the slaughter of children. The only way to not pay for abortions is to earn, buy, and sell nothing. (Good luck with that.)
COVID19. Yes, COVID19 and the vaccinations made from the body parts of aborted babies. (Read about the humanized mice used to create the COVID vaccines.)
Horrific crimes. Think of the Christmas Parade Massacre in Waukesha, Wisconsin, or the school shooting in Oakland, Michigan. The smash-and-grab looting going on in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
Exorcists tell us that demonic obsession looks a lot like schizophrenia with one big exception: the schizophrenic has a break with reality; the obsessed never does. An obsessed person knows that something outside of experienced reality is putting the horrible images and fears in their head. They know it’s not of the physical world. They sometimes harm themselves or others because the obsessive demon tells them their obsession will go away if they do. As Father Gabriela Amorth wrote:
Diabolical obsessions are disturbances or extremely strong hallucinations that the demon imposes, often invincibly, on the mind of the victim. In these cases the person is no longer master of his own thoughts. Rather, he is subjected to a powerful force that creates mental activity in him that is repetitive, obsessive, and irresistible. Such representations of reality, even if foreign to his manner of thinking, become profoundly fixed in his psyche. The objects of these hallucinations can be manifested as visions, as voices, or as rustlings; they can also appear as monstrous figures, horrifying animals, or devils. In other cases it can be an impulse to commit suicide or to do evil to others; and, particularly in the young, it can lead to confusion about one’s gender. The history of cases is so vast that it is impossible to enumerate all the forms of diabolical obsession.1
Why All These Diabolical Obsessions Now?
It’s a numbers game with a network effect.
The late Fr. Gabriele Amorth is one of the most famous exorcists in recent years. His work was featured in a documentary by the director of the film The Exorcist, William Freidkin. Fr. Amorth died just before the documentary was released. Here’s a trailer for the film:
I hope you paid attention to that little quote from Bishop Robert Barron.
I think it’s a very dangerous thing, getting in close quarters with the devil. People like Father Amorth maybe can do that. I would never dare do it.
—Bishop Robert Barron
Bishop Barron is pretty typical of modern Catholic bishops. They either disbelieve in the devil, or they’re so afraid of him they won’t talk about him. I would estimate over 90 percent of bishops fall into one of those two categories. Every exorcist I’ve read has mentioned that their bishops don’t want to even know what goes on in an exorcism for fear of drawing the devil’s attention to themselves.
But only bishops can conduct or authorize an exorcism. A priest cannot perform a solemn exorcism with the explicit faculties conferred by his bishop.
Father Amorth tells us why the fear of the bishops is so damaging to souls in his book, An Exorcist Explains the Demonic:
We have already revealed that the more we fear the devil, the more he attacks us. Therefore, if we leave him alone he will become aware of our weakness and will never leave us in peace. 2
Bishop Barron’s refusal to fight the devil out of fear only draws the devil closer to his chancery.
One reason for the increase in demonic activity, then, is the fear of the bishops. Their fear attracts demons who prowl about the world looking for souls to devour.
Another reason is the growth in interest in the occult, as we mentioned earlier. The more people who invite Satan into their lives, the more damage Satan does to the rest of the humanity. As Fr. Amorth says in his book, An Exorcist Explains the Demonic:
I think that at least 90 percent of the cases of possessions and of other evil spells are directly attributable not to their victims but to those persons who have turned their particular attentions on them, practicing some spells or evil eye against them for various motives, such as resentment, hatred, or vendetta.3
When witches and other Satanists made a show of placing hexes, vexes, and curses on Donald Trump, Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett, and others, they weren’t messing around. They were serious. I wrote about the curses on Kavanaugh during his conformation hearings:
And look what’s happened. Donal Trump is no longer president (though he didn’t lose), and Justices Kavanaugh and Barrett have mysteriously departed from their lifetime patterns of jurisprudence. Their decisions on the Supreme Court seem driven more by fear of the consequences of doing the right thing than from some newfound “living Constitution” epiphany.
The fact is, interest in the occult is higher now than it’s been in America’s history. In 2018, Pew Research found that witchcraft is the fastest growing “religion” in the United States. As Newsweek explained in 2018:
The number of witches and Americans practicing Wicca religious rituals increased dramatically since the 1990s, with several recent studies indicating there may be at least 1.5 million witches across the country. A Trinity College study conducted in 1990 estimated only about 8,000 Wiccans in the U.S., but the increase has been led by a rejection of mainstream Christianity among young Americans as well as a rise in occultism.
In fact, by 2018 more Americans listed their religion as “witchcraft” than Presbyterian:
Fifty years ago, wearing Satanic symbols would get you thrown into an insane asylum. No one would go near you. Today, you’re more likely to be accused of wearing a cross or writing a blog like this one. The devil has come out of the shadows to operate in full view of humanity, and most people are okay with it. Even most conservative Christians are reluctant to speak up about the proliferation of evil in our culture.
So, fewer people cooperate with God to combat demons out of fear (including Catholic bishops and priests), and more people embrace demons out of a desire for “gifts” like power, money, sex, and knowledge of the future. As a culture and a nation, we have distanced ourselves from the heavenly court and moved closer to Satan and his legions of demons. What did we expect would happen?
How to Protect Yourself
When most people hear the phrase “protect yourself” they think of threats posed by other people, animals, machines, or microbes. And, for most of my life, I believed the best ways to be safe included lifting weights, avoiding carbohydrates, learning how to throw a punch, and getting proficient with various weapons in high-stress situations.
While all those practices are still important, they won’t protect you from demons.
Remember the quote from Fr. Amorth that 90 percent of diabolical attacks requiring an exorcist result from curse thrown on the victim by someone else. That means you and I are in danger of diabolical attack because so many of our fine fellow Americans cooperate with and expect gifts from demons. One of the gifts people expect is the ability to cast harmful hexes on their enemies.
This is what St. Paul was talking about to the Ephesians:
[D]raw your strength from the Lord, from that mastery which his power supplies. You must wear all the weapons in God’s armoury, if you would find strength to resist the cunning of the devil. It is not against flesh and blood that we enter the lists; we have to do with princedoms and power, with those who have mastery of the world in these dark days, with malign influences in an order higher than ours. (Ephesians 6:10-13, Knox)
I chose the Knox translation because, in my opinion, it makes sense than any other translation. Paul might have speaking to us today. The witches, the dabblers in the occult, the Wiccans, the Satanists, and the voluntarily wicked people how now dominate American and global institutions “have mastery of the world.” But they are neither the source nor summit of the power they wield. Their power is on loan from “an order higher than ours.” An order of fallen angels who exist solely to right God and deny Him communion with His people on earth.
They say misery loves company, right? Well, the most intense misery possible for a creature of God is to be eternally cast off from God, which is the fate of the demons. By dragging people to hell with them, the demons kill two birds with one stone: a poke in the eye of God and another lowly human to bully, torture, and torment for all eternity.
The protection we all need now, then, is the protection of God and His angels. We seek to be doused in Christ’s Precious Blood, wrapped in the mantle of Our Lady, hidden behind the shield of St. Michael the Archangel, and filled to bursting with the Holy Spirit so there’s no room for demons to enter.
Until we are individual so supernaturally protected, we must care less about the society and the country. We need to don our masks before assisting others. (This goes doubly for me who often abandons home to fight someone else’s battle for them.)
That list of problems that began this post will not shorten through normal human action: protests, angry letters, even elections. One demon is more powerful and more intelligent than entirety of humanity.
But our cooperation with God’s holy will, with the incessant prayers of the saints and the invocation of our guardian angels make us impervious to legions of the damned.
The less we care for this world, the more God will care for it. We’ve asked Him to butt out by our own free will, and it appears it worked; He has left us to our own devices. Devices that are as inadequate as a BB gun at Iwo Jima.
When I was in the Navy, I asked a very smart and learned shipmate—and proud “agnostic”—if he believed in ghosts. His answer was remarkable.
“Bill,” he said, “there are more colors of light than can be seen or measured and more frequencies of sound than can be heard or reproduced.”
What you see going on all around—from the murder to the Covid totalitarianism, to the vaccines that kill and mame, to the cancel culture and CRT—are the work of many humans cooperating with the damned. Our best defensed is counter-cooperation with the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
